Inside the Mind of Murdoch: News Corp’s Path to News Domination 10/24/07

Just what is Rupert Murdoch’s plan to dominate the news business? You can read what I think in this article I’ve written for Pajamas Media.

As you will read, Murdoch’s methods will be simple and proven, as he goes against competitors whose biggest enemies are themselves. As a serious businessman who defines his trade as “news” and his goal as making a profit, he strangely finds himself all alone in an industry where everyone else seems to have better things to do. His boldest gambit will be to replace the existing news distribution supply chain with his own, placing us in an environment where we can get news of everything from the small (family, friends, communities) to the large (the world) without ever leaving the well-advertised confines of News Corporation properties. And somehow, we will be smiling.
